The Nebraska Center for Energy Sciences Research is a collaboration between the Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). The Energy Center annually funds seed grants that enable UNL faculty to conduct innovative research to develop or enhance clean energy technologies.

In 2014, the Nebraska Public Power District produced a video showcasing five energy research projects funded through the Nebraska Center for Energy Sciences Research.  The
University of Nebraska-Lincoln  professors leading these projects are Galen Erickson, Animal Science; Concetta DiRusso, Biochemistry;  Joe Luck, Biological Systems Engineering; James Specht, Agronomy and Horticulture;  and Alexander Sinitskii, Chemistry.  To view the video, go to Video Showcases Five Energy Research Projects. Click on Research Grant Awards to see more information about all research projects.
